Thoughts on Monday with Julie

Julie: Mum likes to read in the upstairs hallway.
There is a nook  with a sofa just under a window.
I like to sit with mum when she reads there.

There is a window behind us that looks out
on the street .It is a small  window just my size.
I am slowly getting used to this place.
Mum wishes I would come out of my room more
and maybe come downstairs.
It seems in my older years, I am used to the quiet
of our place. Auntie's place still feels strange.

Hey! At least I'm not hiding...much!
I do like to go behind this sofa for naps though.
It is quiet and no one will sneak up om me.
All in all I am pretty happy and I know mum
is happy to be spending her days with me.
We both like this retirement thing!!!

Happy Friday with Julie

Julie: Happy Friday friends!
I am sitting here waiting for mum to get my breakfast

                                                      Sometimes I have to go downstairs
                                                            to see what is taking so long .
                                                    Usually it's because she is making a coffee.
                                                       I will then eat my breakfast downstairs
                                                      while she gets the coffee and her own breakfast.
                                                 I am still nervous, but I am getting more comfy.
I just do things in my own time!
Purrs you all have a pawsome weekend!!!!

Still Getting Used to my World!

Julie: This is one of my fave places to sit. 
I have some great views from here.

From this sofa, I can see through the railings if the staircase.
I can see who is coming up or going down
the stairs. My room is just to the left(your left)
in this picture.

 Yes I am getting more comfy, but still prefer to be
upstairs unless it is really quiet downstairs.
I sometimes go down there looking for her ;)
Uncle moves differently than Mum or Auntie.
A bit more quickly and  his voice is a bit
deeper and excitable.
Mum says it is just a bit more exuberant and
Guess I am more used to lighter and softer tones
and slower movements from mum.
Anyway, I am doing quite well and I'm
pretty happy.
I really like having mum around all the time.
I think she likes it too!!!

Happy Friday with Julie

Julie: Happy Friday friends.
How are you doing?
I am well, still being a bit...OK a lot shy.
Not sure why. There is nothing here to scare me. 
I guess I have just gotten used to being alone
most of that day and then evenings with mum.
Oh well, I am doing well and going at my own pace.
I do love having mum home all day and she likes
it too!!!

This sofa is in a little nook in the upstairs hallway.
Above me is a window with a windowsill.
I like to sit there and look outside
There is a street ns the house is pretty close to the street.
Good thing it is not a main road.
In front of me are railings that that enclose
the open stairway. They are see through railings.
I can see who comes up and down the stairs.
In the picture above, you can see the doorway to my room.
I share it with mum.

 Mum is often downstairs with Auntie.
When it is quiet, I sometimes go downstairs to find her.
As  long as mum is around I am happy.
I will get adventurous in my own time.
So for now, I am sending god wishes for all to have
Pawsome Weekend!!!!!

Monday, 25 July 2022

Just Hanging around with Julie!

Julie: Yup still in my room. I am doing well upstairs.
I wander into the rooms and I like to sit on the
sofa in the hallway under the window with Mum.
I am still not very adventurous. Certainly  not 
as bold as I was when I was looking for a home
As long as Mum is around I am happy.
Click the link and see when I was adopted!


Mum is using the editing programmes that came with
the laptop and she does not like them.
She is used to her old Elements one, so the photo
editing is hit and miss. MOL!!!!

 Anyway, I am still happy that mum is around
all the time and I can get scritches on demand.
However, when it is quiet at night I sometimes
go downstairs to find her!
She is usually there with Auntie.
Uncle is around too, but I am not a used to him
yet. That my take a while .
I may not be adventurous, bit I am happy.
after all, mum is home all the time with ME!!!!

Friday, 22 July 2022

Hanging out and doing OK!

Julie: Yaaaaaaaaawn!
Good day friends. Mum is getting used to the new 
laptop and the editing package that came with the
computer. She used a desktop before. At  some point, 
it will all be easy for her...MOL!!

Anyway, I am still staying upstairs most of
the time. I do have a few fave spots I like to enjoy.
One is Auntie's room at the top of the stairs.
I sit in a chair by the door and I can see who is coming
up  the stairs. I like that.

Must remind mum to get a pic of me there ;)
Have a happy weekend friends!!

Casual Monday with Julie

Julie: I like sitting on the sofa in the hallway upstairs.
Above and behind me is a window that I 
like to sit in and watch people walking on the

 I like to relax here as well.
Often mum is next to me reading  or looking
at her phone or getting ready to brush me.
I love that part!

Most of the time I just sit and watch what goes on
and see who is going up and down the stairs.
                                                    There is a railing I can see through that makes 
                                                        viewing easy. Comfort with a!!!

Nighttime Viewing

Julie: like this window because it has a nice
windowsill for me to sit on an look outside.
It's dark, but I can see the street with the streetlights.

                                                            Not too much is moving out there. 
                                                            But I know  there are critters outside.
                                                            In the daytime I can see and hear birds.
                                                            There is a tree just outside this window
                                                            and if the screen was not there, I could jump
                                                            on  the branches.
                                                            I think that would be FUN!
                                                            Mum, not so much...darn!

                                                             Have a pawsome weekend!

Monday with Julie

Julie: Gee, this is a pretty nice view.

Oh Hi! I am enjoying the views from the hallway 
upstairs in Auntie's place.
The views from up here are pretty cool.
I see people walking up and down the road.
Sometimes, mum does that too.


I am still adjusting to this place
It is taking me a long time to adjust to this change.
The good thing is that mum is with me all the time
 now that she has retired.

In  our old cottage, there was just the two of us 
and I spent the day alone when mum worked.
I am still adjusting to the house sounds as
well as Auntie and Uncle.
As long as mum is around I am happy.
Maybe I will even explore a bit... but
not today.

Happy Friday with Julie!

Julie: Hi friends and Happy Friday!
I am sort of posing nicely for mum even though
she is using her phone instead of the big
camera. This way is new to her and there us
a learning curve. Mum is gradually learning how 
to post the pictures she takes with the phone.
Big camera(DSLR) or phone, I'm still
not a fan of having my picture taken.
The other new thing is the laptop.
Instead of using the desktop she is using her new
laptop,Yup, another learning curve.

This is how I feel!!!!! MOL!
Just hurry up and take the picture!!
To be fair she does make it worth my while.
I get treats  and lots of scritches ;)
Thankfully, she is getting the hang of things.
Oh gee!!!!! That makes us both more portable!

The mum:  Relax Julie, we are not globetrotting!
Julie: Thank goodness.
Have a pawsome weekend friends!!!
(Now hand over some treats mum! )



Monday, 4 July 2022

Happy Cat and Happy Birthday to the USA!

Julie: I am really liking this bed at Auntie's
place. It is big and comfy. The best part is
sleeping with mum. I like that
as she can reach over and give me belly rubs
and scritches whenever I want or
when she wants and she wants a lot! MOL!!

I am happy and I have to yell it out 
to the world!
I hope I didn't scare you ! MOL!!!!

To all of my friends in the 
                                                         United States, I want to wish you all a 
                                    HAPPY 4th OF JULY!!!!!
 Enjoy your holiday!

Friday, 1 July 2022

Happy Canada Day!

Julie: Hi friends!
Guess what?
Today is Canada Day!
Our country is 153 years old.
Well, the land is much older, that is just the year
it was named Canada . MOL!
It is a holiday, but since mum retired, everyday is a holiday.

                                            It is a nice sunny day today and it is warm!
                                                     I am still getting used to Auntie's place and tend
                                                     to stay upstairs as it is quiet. Mum would like me 
                                                     to explore more, but I have to do that  at my own 

                                                I still love looking out the windows. It is pretty
                                                nice and so are the views. I get to hang out with mum  
                                                    a lot  so I am really happy!

                                                     That's all for now. Catch up with you all later!!

Happy Monday from Julie!


Julie: As you can see, I am getting a little bit
used to Auntie's place.
I still find is strange compared to the quiet of the home 
mum and I shared. I am used to it being
quiet all day and then just Mum and I.
This  place is pretty cool though.
The windows have cool views.
I can see people walking up and down the street

I must admit that I am still nervous and like to
hang out in my bedroom.
For a change, I like to sit in the chair in Auntie's room.
I am most comfy hanging out on the bed in my room.

I have been used to a quiet home when Mum was at work.
Now that she is home all the time and we
are in a new place, I am a taking my time to explore.
Mum would like me to be out and about more,
but I will do that at my own pace. Have a pawsome week!!

Happy Friday with Julie


Julie: Hi friends and Happy Friday to you!
Mum and I are staying with Auntie and I am
slowly getting used to this place.
As long as mum is here, I am happy.

 I am still nervous of this place and I spend 
a lot of time in the bedroom.

When I need a break, I go into Auntie's
                                                             room. It is at the top of the stairs.
                                                          She has a nice chair just inside the door
                                                          and I can see who is going up and down 
                                                          the stairs. Uncle is here too and I am not as sure
                                                        about him, but that will take time ;)

                                                      I am still adjusting to this place. I think it
                                                 will take a while for me to be really comfy here.
                                                        I love having mum around all the time!

Mum got a new laptop when she retired.
She was using her desktop.
It is taking her some time to get used to  posting 
from the laptop and the keyboard functions.
Good that I am not the only one making adjustments!
Anyway we are both happy.
Have a pawsome weekend!!!!!!!!!!

Happy Friday from Julie

Julie: Hi friends! As you can see, I am still at Aunties place.
Mum and I are enjoying it here.
I am still exploring and enjoying myself.
I am upstairs and have explored the downstairs when it is 
quiet, often early in the morning. As we expect to be here a long time
I imagine I will get braver.

I already found a comfy place for afternoon naps.
This chair is in Aunties room.It has a nice soft
blanket that makes for good napping.


                                                         I think I will enjoy a few more naps.
                                                          Have a good weekend!!!!!

Relaxing on Friday with Julie

 Hi, Julie here again.
I am still am still staying with Auntie Nina and Mum.
I am a bit nervous as I am not used to this place.
I did do some exploring this morning though.
I went downstairs and looked around.
My place  is one level so the stairs are new to me. 
It was fun, but I like my room  and the upstairs places best.
Have a FUN weekend!!!!


Monday, 6 June 2022

It's Me, Julie and I'm Back !

Julie: It  has been a while since I was here!
A lot has happened too.
Mum retired and now she is with me ALL the time!!!!!!
I am really liking that.
Well, we both are enjoying that. MOL!!!!
I am getting used to being at Auntie's place
and I am a bit nervous as I do not like new places.
It may take a while for me to be comfy but as long
as mum is with me it will be OK!!
Not too sure how long we will be here, but that
is OK too.
As long as I am with mum my world is a happy one.
Now, I need to catch up with all of you, my friends!!!!!

                                                MOL, Mum got a laptop when she retired and has

                                                to figure out the keyboard functions. 

                                                  All I care about is being back on the blog!

My Fave Spots !

Julie: Today I am showing you three of my fave
spots to hang out.
First up is this table I like it as I have a great view
of the living room and into the kitchen.
It also had this really soft, furry matt
It makes it easy to keep an eye on Mum ;) MOL!!!!

This  is  my other fave spot. As you can see
it is very comfy with a blanket.
I also use this spot for snoozing.

This spot is really comfy too.
As it is on top of a filing cabinet, it gives me a 
great view of what's going on around me.
Mind you, if I fall asleep, I don't see too much!!!!

That's  OK though, because you know snoozing is  FUN!!!
Having mum home all the time is more FUN !!!
You know ... belly rubs on command,  that sort of thing.
MOL!!! I love it and I think mum does too.
Hope you all have a great weekend.
What do you do that's FUN ?

Julie's Thoughts on Monday

Julie: Saturday was nice and sunny but a bit cool.
I did not go out for long.
Mum is not too keen on  me going outside right now.
The reason is ticks. They are out and about  and mum
does not want any to get on me or bite me.

I am not too crazy about that, but I do not want any 
 tick bites either. If that happens it means a trip to the Vet.

For now, I will be content to be indoors.
Mum can always get some grass for me.
She will have to be careful of ticks too, but she
has boots to protect her.
Ooooooo those darn ticks!!!
They spoil my FUN!

 I do like getting my own grass but I know mum 
can get nice juicy blades of grass for me.
I do like being a spoiled cat.
Hey mum, how about some belly rubs!!!

* Click on the word ticks above (or here)to learn more
information on these nasty things.

Relaxing on Friday the 13!

Julie: Today is Friday the 13th.
Many people thing this means bad luck.
They think black cats cause bad luck.
I think that is just silly and so does mum.
Mum loves my furs as they are so soft and
silky. She also loves  the look of an all black cat. 
I am happy she does because she rescued me from
the great outdoors!
I love being petted , bit I love getting
brushed more! I always hop up on this matt
when I want brushies or to just relax.
I am a very lucky and happy cat!

Do you have a favourite place  where you like to relax?

 Happy Friday the 13! 

Yup, it's just another day for me too ;)

Monday, 9 May 2022

Enjoying a Sunny Afternoon

Julie: Saturday was sunny so I decided to go out
after supper to sit for a bit.

Sometimes I hear birds and squirrels.
Sometimes it's quiet.
Sometimes I like to eat grass and sometimes
I just like to sit.

Not much was going on

 This week will be pretty nice.
The temps are going up a bit so it will be warmer.
It is really good to see the days getting longer
and warmer.
I also like having mum around. No more being
home alone and she likes it too,
 though at first it just feels like a vacation.
She does like the "no end" part about this "vacation"!

I Survived The Vet Procedure!

Julie: Well, I had my operation and the lump in my belly is gone.
Mum says people are going to study it too.
I purr they like what they see...I guess.
The Vet also stole a couple of my teeth!
I still have enough to eat though...whew!

 Now that the ordeal is over and I am back home,
I hope I do not have to face anything like that  again!
I like being home!
Thank you for all your purrs and kind thoughts.
They really helped me :)

Tuesday, 3 May 2022

Good Thoughts for Julie

 Julie is at the Vet's today.
She has a lump on her belly that will be
removed. I am hoping it will not be anything bad.
I will keep you updated.

Also, please keep dear Paula in your thoughts
as well as Truffle and Brulee
